Hyderabad: A 35-year-old man had a miraculous escape after being swept away by floodwaters in Medchal on Monday morning. Mr Venu was washed away while riding to Medchal to fetch drinking water. Locals managed to rescue him though his bike was washed away.
The incident took place when he was crossing the overflowing Kistapur stream. After riding for some distance, due to the heavy flow of water, his bike got stuck.
